CONTE DU LITTORAL
L’Illusion, Théâtre de marionnettes
A writer cuts himself off from the outside world to write, but before long his solitude is interrupted by Maski, his double, who steals his pen. The characters they create together invade their space, demanding to be heard just like anyone else and to continue their story to the end. After coming into contact with Madeleine, a woman of the sea, the writer becomes a doctor, and also a father to the young Tinamer. Together, they travel to Mount Thabor to free the misunderstood deaf child Coco, who paints landscapes. To what extent can a writer lose himself to allow his work to come alive?
This production, a dreamlike tale inspired by the life and work of Jacques Ferron, physician and author, takes place in a constantly changing organic world. Close relationships between humans and puppets reveal a universe that blends the real and the fantastical, in which surprising characters spring forth from various raw materials and highly evocative visuals. The result is both sensitive and powerful.
The mission of L’Illusion, Théâtre de marionnette, a Montreal institution since 1979, is to create, produce and distribute works that highlight the great variety in puppetry. The company focuses its work primarily on the young citizens it enjoys surprising with innovative proposals. L’Illusion productions are fascinating in both content and form, allying visual and performing arts.
